i have collected this Impatiense from Mahendragiri hills, South Odisha from an altitude of 1200 m.
Please help me in identification.


It looks like spurless variety of Impatiens balsamina, but I am not sure because of its hairy lip.


Thanks … for the initiation. Is this Impatiens scabriuscula
Please conform


Further i went through the paper published in Rheedea on The genus Impatiens (Balsaminaceae) in the northern and parts of central Western Ghats by Jyosna R.N. Dessai and M.K. Janarthanam and it says

24. Spur present ……………………………………………… rosea and balsamina
24. Spur absent …………………………… I. scabriuscula
In my specimen spur is absent.
Hence can i say that this is
Impatiense scabriuscula


I can agree with …, however even S Odissa is opposite side of subcontinent, quite far from known distribution of I. scabriuscula.
Anyone with access to flora of Odissa?
